TURN TO THE RIVER
Located between the Vigo County Courthouse and the Terre Haute City Hall, the artwork was envisioned as a comprehensive public space encompassing a water sculpture, trees, lighting, paving, and seating is part of an overall vision of a re-focusing upon the Wabash River, which flows through Terre Haute, Indiana. As a first step in the overall Turn to the River rejuvenation project, the water sculpture and plaza act as a catalyst for the development of a promenade with an event space and an elevated overlook that will provide beautiful views of a picturesque portion of the Wabash River. The water sculpture itself is created from black granite and measures 38’ long x 8’ wide x 2’-6” in height. The horizontal surface of the sculpture is carved with an abstraction of the Wabash River valley, with the water falling into pools at both the East and West ends of the artwork.
